2016 - 2017 Athletic Program
All students must pass a physical examination within 13 months before participating in any sport. A sport's physical terminates 395 days subsequent to administering and must be renewed immediately to maintain eligibility. (M.I.A.A.)
The new activity fee schedule, effective for the 2016-2017 school year, shall be as follows:
• $250 basic fee per sport per athletic season (three athletic seasons per academic year)
• $250 additional fee per athletic season for each of the following sports: ice hockey, alpine ski, and gymnastics.
The total maximum family cap for Acton-Boxborough students participating in the above activities during the 2016-2017 school year shall be $1000. Only the basic fee counts towards the family cap calculation. Additional fee does not apply to cap.
Academic Eligibility Rule: Students must be taking and passing four major subjects to be eligible.
Bona Fide Team Rule: If students are participating in two athletic activities in the same season, the school's program must be a priority. Ex: If a student plays Field Hockey for the school team and swims for a private non-school team, the student cannot miss a school game or practice to go to a swim meet or practice instead. When there is no school activity, the student can do as he or she chooses.
The interscholastic athletic program is divided into fall, winter, and spring seasons. Within each season we offer a variety of sports programs. As a member of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA), ABRHS abides by the regulations set forth by this organization.
Waiver Of Athletic Fee Form The policy has changed this year to coincide with changes made to the DESE's guidelines around economically disadvantage students. Please see link for some more information.
Student athletes are responsible for having this form completed by a Parent/Guardian and the Health Office PRIOR to trying out for any sport. Completed forms should be returned to your coach on the 1st day of tryouts. NOTE: Students without a completed form will NOT be allowed to participate.
